Things I hate in fanfictionNaruto being punished or not rewarded bringing Sasuke back: Sasuke is a vital ressource for the village and Naruto brought it back to the village, so Naruto should get a prrrrromotion (channeling Dr. Robotnik) and not a kick in the pingas (channeling Dr. Robotnik again) like always. The ANBU not guarding Naruto from physical abuse: Stress could let the deadliest of the demons loose on Konoha, for fucks sake! They'd watch nobody even harm a hair on his head, but probably couldn't prevent being hated. Mary Sue: In 99% of the cases shit. bad writing bad spelling/grammar: bashing/deifing Too fast power-ups Harry, Hermione, the Weasleys or others similar characters becoming pureblood racists Authors begging for reviews: If an author only will write, if s/he gets n reviews, than s/he shouldn't write AT ALL! The author being to thinn-skinned: If you're getting your panties in a bunch because of trolls and pull stories, than the trolls have won!! The Malfoys not caring about family: Their only redeeming character trait in canon. "Don't like it, don't read it"-statements: These kinda statements in fanfic story descriptions and author's notes indicate the author's inability to deal with criticism. An author shouldn't tell anyone not to read their stories, but warn them about what they see as controversial content and leave the choice to the reader (Something like "This story contains *stuff insert here*. You have been warned, proceed at you own peril and please give *constructive* criticism").
